How Does Mixpanel Compare to Google Analytics?

I’m answering this question from the perspective of a long time Mixpanel and Google Analytics customer. I use both of them concurrently in the development of a social game and have a fairly good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each tool. I’d summarize it this way: Google Analytics is the swiss army knife that can do almost anything (with some effort and a few regular expressions) while Mixpanel is a tool focused on visitor-level event engagement. As with many things in life, however, it’s not that simple. While I’ve used the API from both tools, I’m sharing an opinion based on experience with each of their web-based reporting interfaces. This is my take on what Mixpanel does that Google Analytics can’t.

How to Use Google Analytics on a WordPress.com Blog

... In any case, I was about to reconsider investing in a self-hosted option when I found a post in the wordpress.com forums linking to a solution from a content delivery network called CloudFlare. The post didn’t generate as much discussion as it seemed to warrant but the idea sounded interesting so I gave it a try. In the end, using CloudFlare to get Google Analytics on my blog worked well enough that I thought it was worth sharing in more detail but not well enough that I would recommend it to everyone without reservation.

How to do Cohort Analysis in Google Analytics

Considering there are services designed specifically for user engagement tracking and customer cohort analysis, it may seem a little odd that we’re going to focus on the one that isn’t. As it turns out, there are good reasons to consider Google Analytics for cohort analysis. In fact, a strong set of standard features combined with a number of new additions makes it a rather strong competitor to the new services.

Pair coding harmful? Stories with a "?" can be answered "no", or, in this case, "depends who you ask".
